Many companies and recruiters now use Twitter to tweet about job opportunities. If you are on Twitter there are a few things you can do to look for them.

  • Set up # tag searches based on keywords that would be used on job postings eg if you are a Business Intelligence consultant looking for a contract you could set up the following: #businessintelligence #job.
  • Look for organisations you would like to work for and follow them if they have a Twitter presence.
  • Look for recruiters that work in your industry and follow them too.
  • Sign up for TwitJobSearch which is a job search engine for Twitter. You can search the jobs that have been tweeted and set up email alerts for new jobs being tweeted.
  • Organise people/organisations that you follow into lists, for example you could have a list for recruiters, one for industry analysts and one for target companies.
  • Because Twitter is so fast moving, consider using a social media dashboard such as Hootsuite or Tweetdeck to manage your Twitter feeds, rather than having one big feed from everyone you follow, which could mean you miss something important!
